Why did Evo Morales find such favour at the Vatican? Evo Morales, who fled to Mexico after resigning as president, may not be missed in Bolivia but his absence will be felt at the Vatican. One of the most curious aspects of the first Latin American pontificate is that Morales enjoyed the status he did. He was the Holy Father’s favourite leader in the Americas. Which was passing strange, as he was a tyrant. Morales, the first indigenous president of Bolivia, took office in 2006. A leftist populist, he was part of the socialist/ communist rise in Latin America:...

The conservative government of Bolivia published an audio file on Wednesday, allegedly of a conversation between a socialist activist and former President Evo Morales in which the latter ordered him to ensure that socialist rioters prevented food and basic goods from getting to the nation’s cities. Morales resigned from the presidency two weeks ago, after 13 years in power, following the revelation of widespread fraud in the October elections he claimed had earned him another five-year term. He then fled to Mexico and claimed to be the victim of a “coup,” although he voluntarily resigned, and is now demanding that...

ROME - A Bolivian cardinal has drawn criticism for his open support of President Evo Morales at a political rally for the long-serving socialist leader. Cardinal Toribio Ticona called on Catholics to support the indigenous leader on Monday, saying, “Moving forward, we must always go with President Evo Morales, not only do we have to speak, but we must all work [in favor of him].” The prelate’s remarks caused concern among opposition leaders and also the local Catholic Church, which distanced itself from Ticona’s remarks.

Assuming someone else doesn’t throw a temper tantrum over the weekend, it appears that we’re going forward with the State of the Union speech next week. This no doubt comes as wonderful news to almost no one, except possibly some of the participants and cable news producers looking for something to fill the schedule. As usual, there will likely be more interest in the audience than the SOTU speech itself. Who will refuse to show up? Perhaps more to the point, who will show up and who will be invited as guests?In a true low moment in the history...

President Evo Morales said Monday he was not abandoning hope despite indications Bolivians had rejected by a slim margin amending the constitution so he could run for a fourth straight term in 2019.

BOLIVIA’S President Evo Morales handed Pope Francis an unusual and some say “provocative” gift during the pontiff’s visit to the country: a carving of Christ crucified on a wooden sickle and hammer. The sculpted juxtaposition of two of the world’s most potent symbols, Christianity and communism, was made by Jesuit priest Luis Espinal. A poet and artist, Espinal was assassinated in 1980 by right-wing paramilitaries, and the pope paid tribute to him on Wednesday on his way from the airport to La Paz, stopping at the site of his death. Pope Francis is the first Jesuit pope.
